Irish bagpipe solo, unknown label and date of recording. Brophy was a whistle and flute player from Roscrea, Co. Tipperary, who took up the pipes in the late 1920s or 30s. His sons Mick and Jim were pipers as well, Jim being made a patron of Na Píobairí Uilleann, the Dublin based pipers' club, in 1987; he passed away in 2002. Pat plays a two part version of this old reel, as did Michael Carney, Kerry fiddler Michael Hanafin, and Galway's Ballinakill Traditional Dance Players, on their recordin...

[audio]Colliers, Salamanca - Reels - Michael Gallagher
Irish bagpipe solo, Shamrock 1235, recorded NYC, unknown date. Gallagher was a Leitrim flute player who learned the pipes in America. He displays phenomenal skill with these two reels, which were transcribed in An Piobarie, the journal of Na Píobairí Uilleann, the pipers' club based in Dublin. Note how he plays the bottom D of the chanter while simultaneously striking the D note of his regulators (harmony pipes), using the D to swell the drones at other times.

[audio]Garden of Daisies - Long Dance - Michael Gallagher
Irish bagpipe solo, Shamrock 1235, recorded NYC, unknown date. Gallagher was a Leitrim flute player who learned the pipes in America. "Long Dances" are usually referred to as Set Dances, and are tunes in jig or hornpipe time with extra bars of music, usually in the tune's second part, with unique steps for each dance. Gallagher has some very attractive bits of staccato playing in his version.

His piping setting of Lucy Campbell differs greatly in places from that recorded by Michael Coleman, which is now standard. This setting was transcribed in both the Dance Music of Willie Clancy and Ceol Rince Na Eireann Vol. 2, in the latter taken from the piping of Andy Conroy, a Roscommon musician who knew Gallagher in New York City and recorded a pair of duets with him on a hom...

Irish bagpipes solo, Arthur P. Kenna - piano. Gallagher was a Leitrim flute player who learned the pipes in America. Confusingly this medley has only two tunes in it, although three are listed. Perhaps Moran was the musician who Gallagher learned the other hornpipes from. In my copy of Francis O'Neill's Second Edition of Waifs and Strays of Gaelic Melody (1922)there is a Moran's Hornpipe, the second tune in this medley, taken from the fiddling of Patrick Stack (whose duets with piper Eddie Mulla...

Subsequently (?) he took to calling it the Ravelled Hank of Yarn, by which title it is now known...

[audio]Jackson's Morning Brush, The Clare Jig - Leo Rowsome
Irish bagpipes solo, HMV IM525. Jackson was an 18th century piper/composer who gave his name to many fine tunes, most famously this one, which lends itself well to the pipes with room for cranning and staccato passages. Patsy Touhey recorded a typically intricate three part version on a wax cylinder, with one of his trademark flurries of notes in the third part. The Clare Jig is the title in John Roche's collection for the tune now called the Mug of Brown Ale...

Irish bagpipes solo, HMV IM528. Byrne's is an ever popular tune, also recorded by Michael Coleman and the Ballinakill Ceili Band on 78. Kilfinane (Cill Fhíonáin in Irish) is a small market town in southeast County Limerick, and this hornpipe was contributed to Francis O'Neill's books by Tipperary fiddler Edward Cronin. Cronin composed tunes and this may be one of his originals. This is likely an example of Leo adapting tunes from books, although he may have learned it from a Munster musician -...

Conroy probably refers to Andy Conroy, a Roscommon piper who was a close friend of Leo's, and probably his opposite in musical sensibilities - Andy's playing was almost experimental in its staccato, and he almost always played just the chanter - no drones. The tune Leo plays is called the Boys of Cappaquin in O'Neill's, and nowadays the Boy in the Gap...

Irish bagpipes solo, Decca W5246. The Boy in the Boat is unique to Leo as far as I know, and very much a piping reel, with its prominent cranning on the bottom D. Leo's full stop just before proceeding into the second tune is a wonderful effect. Chicago piper and solid Rowsome fan Joe Shannon recorded this tune on the 70s LP he made with fiddler Johnny McGreevy, The Noonday Feast. The Moring Dew isn't the reel recorded by Michael Coleman, but rather the tune almost always called the Woman of the...

Irish bagpipes solo, Decca W5245. The Maid(s) of Mount Kisco is said to be a composition of Sligo fiddler Paddy Killoran, who recorded it in the 30s. His recording can be heard on the CD From Ballymote to Brooklyn, which is compiled from Killoran/James Morrison anthologies released by the Shanachie label in the 70s. Killoran played it very much as a fiddler might, with a prominent bowed triplet in the first bar; flute players and pipers like Leo very quickly substituted more standard rolls, and ...

When I was learning the pipes my tutor (who was a big Leo fan) always insisted Leo played the 1812 Overture on the regulators in Colonel Fraser. Never quite heard it myself! This is one of the great piping reels, and a tricky tune to play, found in innumerable versions on all instruments...
